The main complain is a worsening of his night and color vision. Clinical and electrophysiological studies confirm the association of fundus albipuncatus with cone dystrophy. The family study found another cone dystrophy-associated case in his thirty-three year-old affected brother. Discussion: Though it is considerated a stationary disease, we report the association of fundus albipunctatus with symptoms and signs related to cone dysfunction. We review the possible nature of this association.
